With the Undertaker and Triple H locking up one more time at WrestleMania this April, the new look of the Phenom has people wondering why the WWE legend got rid of his trademark long hair he had since his debut.

The reason for the new hairstyle isn’t as complicated as some might expect it to be for the Undertaker.

From Wrestling News Source via Pro Wrestling Torch:

It's being said that the exact reason why The Undertaker has shaven his head bald is simply because he felt that his long hair was annoying and he didn't like always having to mess with it.

Instead of a long, drawn-out explanation for the new hairstyle, the Undertaker had a pretty simple reason to lose his long black hair.

During his run as the American Badass character from 2000 through 2003, the Undertaker had a very short buzz cut unlike what he had as his undead character since the time he debuted in 1990.

While we haven’t seen the new bald look of the Undertaker, I still believe the best look for the Phenom is his long black hair with the cowboy hat and leather coat that we have seen the past few years.

Even though I’m not wild about the new bald look for the Phenom, I believe the crowd in attendance for WrestleMania will go crazy when the Undertaker takes off his hood that he was sporting on Raw SuperShow last Monday before the Hell in a Cell match.

So Bleachers, which look of the Undertaker's was your favorite during his career: long hair, short hair or the new bald look that he will debut at WrestleMania?
